My name is Stuart iam coming over from uk on the 3 of Jan for 14 days and want to fit some downhill/epic riding in and some enduro motobikes I will have a car/camper gota sort that out to lol I fly into Christchurch and leave outa Auckland not a lot of time i know but its what i got Any ideas or help would be much appreciated.
Christchurch MTBing, im sure some DH down there Nelson, has some good DH im told Wellington, Makara & Long Gully are probably your best options Upper Hutt, Maidstone area Napier, not sure about Eskdale if it has much DH? Taupo, again not sure of the DH around Taupo. Rotorua, Redwoods area, tons of stuff Auckland again, lots around
Thanks for reply. Think i found some enduro riding in Christchurch with adventure trail rides and have obversly been told that Queens town is the place to go for moutain biking and motorbiking but dont want to put all my activites in one place and unsure still if to bring bike aswell as going oz first for new year
Yep, upper Hutt good, but not sure about Hire in Wellington
You can hire touristy Enduro MX bikes in Rotorua and CHCH(WR's etc) and Nelson has a trials and enduro riding set up if I remember right?
I'd recommend best option for s good day MXing is Thundercross? MX bike park towards Auckland (look it up). I remember seeing hire bikes there a while back. Pretty fun place for an all round thrill. Most of the other options are guided tours, which could be gay if stuck with a bunch of noobies.
Eh, no real DH around Taupo, there's coles killer, but it's not very fun having to pull a 18kg downhill bike uphill for 20 minutes for a 4 minute downhill run, and there is also the budda, which if your quite fast can do sub 1 minute, for DH i'd recommend going to Rotorua.
Wow iam so excited thanks alot for the feed back need to do lots of organising now and work out how much it will be 2 bring my santacruz vpfree with me will keep ya updated and hopfully take some of u up on a ride or 2 Thanks again and keep the ideas coming lol Peace Stuart
